It has been nearly 20 years since the Supreme Court decision in Théberge, which described the Copyright Act as “a balance between promoting the public interest in the encouragement and dissemination of works of the arts and intellect and obtaining a just reward for the creator,” and nearly a decade since the Copyright Modernization Act was enacted to launch Canadian copyright law into the digital age.

Join our panel members for a discussion regarding the concept of balance in Canadian copyright law, including:

  • Should copyright be balanced in Canada? If so, is copyright balanced?
  • Theory and practice: What does balance mean and what role does it play?
  • Examining the legal issues in which balance has played a role, from the dissemination of works and other subject matter on the Internet to fair dealing to Crown Copyright and more;
  • A balanced future: Looking ahead to how balance might continue to shape copyright law in the future; and
  • Finding your balance: Practical tips and tricks for managing a practice and building bridges in view of an evolving legal and technological landscape.
